On October 23rd, at 6:02 a.m., Students in Mrs. Craig’s Chemistry classes arrived in her room to celebrate Mole Day. Mole Day is a celebration of Avogadro’s number (6.02 x 10^23), which is known as a “mole” and was created in 1991 to foster interest in chemistry. Every mole day has a theme, and this year’s theme was MOLEvengers.
To celebrate, students brought in Mole Day themed food (i.e.; Coca-Mola, MOLE Dew, GuacaMOLE, and cookies and cupcakes decorated to look like moles), wore Mole Day t-shirts, created posters and puzzles and videos, told Mole Day jokes, and some helped design an escape room.
The students who set up the escape room came in after school the Thursday prior to Mole Day to plan, create clues, and hide the mole that the other students had to find. All around, it was a fun morning for all involved. Happy Mole Day!
